Coulee Region forward Connor Gaarder connected for three goals and an assist as the Chill skated to a two-game sweep over Alexandria. On Friday, the Edina, Minn., native notched a pair of goals in a 6-3 victory. The next night, the 19-year-old who competed in last week’s NAHL Top Prospects Tournament tallied the game-winning marker and an assist as the Chill downed the Blizzard, 6-4.
“Connor has been one of our top and most consistent players all year,” said Chill head coach Garrett Strot. “He had a very strong Top Prospects Tournament and carried that performance into last weekend’s games.”
